Welcome to the Indiana State Fair

Welcome to the Indiana State Fair

While celebrating the year of the dairy cow at the Indiana State Fair during the next two weeks, be sure to stop by and visit Team WRSP in the Exposition Hall by the Midway!

While at the Fair, White River State Park will have park information and Indiana travel guides and maps to pick up! The Department of Tourism booth is your one stop shop for both WRSP guides and great Indiana information.

We will be there every day through Monday and then again next Friday and Saturday, giving you plenty of opportunities to come say hello!

As always, surveys will be available for WRSP fans to win free concert tickets or tickets to our many attractions. And of course, if you feel like dropping off some deep fried Oreos when you visit, we wouldn’t mind that either.

Blog Recap: Indianapolis, IN | June 2nd, 2012 | www.inwhiteriver.com

As a college student on a college budget, my only prior knowledge of “fine” wine was the variety you can only get from a box (“Cardboardeaux,” the kids affectionately call it these days).

So when I attended the Vintage Indiana Wine & Food Festival this summer, I had no idea what to expect from my first-ever wine tasting experience.

I entered the gates of White River State Park’s Military Park a relative novice; while I didn’t consider myself a wine expert by the time I left, the event was the perfect venue for a few of my girlfriends and me to learn the basics of wine production and tasting, sparking an interest that will come in handy the next time we’re planning our next big get-together.

The Vintage Indiana Wine and Food Festival is an annual showcase of the best of Indiana’s local wineries in a family-friendly environment. For a little over twenty dollars, attendees received unlimited samples of more than 200 wines from around the state — appeasing a wide range from experienced winos and newbies like myself.

After receiving our Vintage Indiana etched tasting glass, we made our way to several of the vendors’ tents, taking the time to converse with each winery’s knowledgeable staff about the various types we were trying. Most volunteered to take us down their wine list — from dry to dessert wines — explaining each offering in great detail while answering the (many) questions that came to our  minds.

Almost every winery offered a Traminette, dubbed the signature wine of the state of Indiana for its grapes’ tenacity in the Midwestern climate. My favorite wine sampled came from first-time Vintage Indiana exhibitors Monkey Hollow Winery: the Pasture Limit, a Concord rose aged in a bourbon barrel.

In addition to its tasting tents, Vintage Indiana also offered helpful seminars on topics like food pairings and at-home production. A kids zone featured face painting, a cartoonist, and balloon artists to please the 20-and-under crowd, while munchies were kept at bay by Bazbeaux Pizza, Jamaican Blue Lagoon Catering, and the Taco Lassi food truck.

Bottles were available for purchase at every tent, of which most attendees took advantage to set up a picnic near the live music stage, where local favorite Jennie DeVoe and American Idol star Casey James performed later in the day.

Overall, Vintage Indiana was a great event to kick off a long-awaited summer of beer and wine festivals. And after learning about all of the fantastic local producers in Indiana, you can bet the next time I enjoy a libation, it won’t be from a box.

Blog Recap: Indianapolis, IN | July 14th, 2012 | www.inwhiteriver.com

Little Red Door, an agency which provides support in dealing with the struggles that come with cancer, came out to the Historic Military Park last Saturday July 14, for the Big Red Bash.

A variety of people came out to support the event and brought several fun activities to the park such as Radio Disney, zip line,  and health screening services.

Also happening at the Big Red Bash was a food truck rally which brought out  several food trucks, such as Hubbard & Cravens coffee and tea, NY slice, Der Pretzel Wagen, Seoul Grill, and many more!

One big part of this event was trying to break the world record of largest zumba class, which didn’t end up happening but the class brought a whomping 2,777 people out to get a small work out!

It was a pleasure having everyone out to support this agency and hope to see you zumba again!

Blog Recap: Indianapolis, IN | June 16, 2012 | http://inwhiteriver.com

On June 16 2012, Team WRSP had the pleasure of attending El Dia de la Familia festival at Historic Military Park at White River State Park.

Delicious smells of Latin cuisine from countries like Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica, and Venezuela greeted us, along with the live music in Spanish, sponsored by Indianapolis’ own Spanish radio station “Radio Latina” (107.1FM – WEDJ).

The festival offered entertainment for all ages, including pony rides and bounce houses for kids and an assortment of vendors selling anything from authentic food and drink to clothing and accessories.

Visit White River State Park throughout the season for other entertaining events and festivals, and be sure to come back next year for El Dia de la Familia!

Blog Recap: Indianapolis, IN | June 25, 2012 | http://inwhiteriver.com

White River State Park welcomed the Eiteljorg Indian Market and Festival on June 23- June 24, 2012.

The event took place in Historic Military Park, people gathered to remember the beauty in Native American culture and get an inside look at how Native Americans survived throughout history.

The market portion of the event housed several talented artists from around the country, from New Mexico to our home here in Indiana!

Some of the items being sold were handmade jewelry, canvas artwork, apparel, weaving, textiles, extremely detailed sculptures, and much more.

Along with the vast amount of talented artists, there were also musicians and performers who showered the Park with peaceful and relaxing music. Many that came enjoyed the experience and walked away with some artwork and music in their pocket.

We also thank everyone who came out to support the artists, musicians, and performers who took time out of their day to share with us their knowledge and talents.

If you missed it this year, keep an ear out next year!
